North Carolina's Onward, Soldiers are the product of fortunate coincidence. Sean Thomas Gerard relocated to Carolina's coast, haphazardly landing his self-recorded demo in the hands of drummer, and co-founder of Winoca Records, Kevin Rhodes. They teamed up with several local musicians, lead guitarist, Lincoln Morris and bassist, Jarett Dorman, to release their first album “Ghost In This Town”, 2010.
Critically celebrated, Ghost In This Town is a compelling blend of unadulterated rock and haunting prose. Growing interest presented the band with many opportunities including; showcases at CMJ, regional festivals, a compilation CD “Gasoline Rainbows” by Vagrant Records, and a feature on Nashville's Music City Roots. Actress Sophia Bush named Onward, Soldiers one of her favorite bands which led to a feature in One Tree Hill (Warner Brothers) with their first single 'Let the Time Roll By', 2011.
Onward, Soldiers are now set to release their second album, “Monsters”, February 2012. “Monsters” is a more refined version of the same raw yet melodic spirit Onward, Soldiers posses, and delivers the unexpected twists and turns of cleverly-crafted musicianship mixed with devilish style and endearing lyricism.
The band can be seen in February, 2012 on PBS's Sun Sessions, filmed at Sun Studios in Memphis, Tennessee.
